I stared at Jayden as he watched me. I was wordless. I didn’t know what to say. He said….. But…. Jayden moved up to bed so he was closer to me. “Jayden.” I whispered looking at him. He took my hand
in his leaning towards me.
“I’m not joking Bailey.” He whispered.
“What – what do you mean Jayden?” I whispered to him as his blue eyes twinkling as he stared at me.
“Can I do something?” He whispered leaning in. I nodded my head shuddering as I felt Jayden’s warm breath on my face.
“Anything.” I swallowed as I felt like I had just eaten a spoon full of cinnamon like I did when I went to camp when I was younger. Jayden leaned closer till I felt his warm breath on my lips. I
closed my eyes as I felt the warmth of his lips on mine. Jayden kissed me. Jayden kissed me. Jayden IS kissing me. It was soft and warm. Just like I remembered it was like. But now it was
different. It wasn’t a kiss of lust or a kiss saying ‘thanks for the sex’ it was a kiss. I felt my heart start to race as Jayden deepened the kiss. I felt Jayden lift his hand up and gently stroke
my cheek. He leaned his forehead against mine. I opened my eyes to look at him. His eyes where closed as he tried to catch his breath again.
“You alright?” He whispered opening his eyes to look at me. I nodded my head as I tried to stop my gasps for air. “I’m sorry.” He said moving away from me laying me down as I caught my breath.
“Don’t apologize.” I smiled at him as he pulled the blanket around him and sat down.
“I don’t want to but I just feel like I have to.” I looked over at him.
“Why?” My stomach dropped into knees.
“Because it’s my fault you’re here.”
“You kissed me because you felt sorry for me?” He looked over at me.
“Of course not Bailey why would I do that?” He asked rubbing his head putting his hands.
“How am I supposed to know? I barley know you anymore.” He looked up at me.
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Jay seen we where 16 you changed so much.”
“No,” He shook his head. “No I haven’t.” I gave a short laugh.
“Are you kidding me? Look at you. Look what you became. You Jay or my Jay-Jay. Your Jayden Dalton.”
“I was always Jayden Dalton.” I shook my head pulling my knees up to lay my chin on top of them.
“No forgot to come to Pool Wednesday. Remember?” He shook his head. “Your date, you blew us off. You never were like this.” He shook his head again laying his head in his hands again.
“You were my partner. You should have been there to play with us. It was the tournament. But no you rather go on date.”
“Bailey she was a mistake.” I laughed again.
“And what we did 2 years ago wasn’t? Or even just now? You always regret it Jayden.”
“No I don’t.” He snapped looking up at me.
“Oh really? Why did you call it a mistake?” He bit his lip. “Don’t flatter yourself Jayden. I’m just a mistake to you.”
“You are not a mistake.”
“Oh really? Do you regret sleeping with me then? Cause you know I got the worse deal of all. You took my virginity.”
“You know I was a virgin too. Not everything is you Bailey.”
“I never said everything was me! I said that you regret it!” I yelled at him. He stood up.
“I don’t fucking regret it!” He yelled back. I laughed at him. “Alright you’re the one who won’t tell anyone! You’re the one that’s keeping it one big fucking secret!” I shook my head.
“You’re the one who told me not to!”
“Bull shit!” I shook my head. I can’t do this. I was suddenly really tired. My heart felt like it was slowly down fast, just wanting to go to sleep. “Bailey you alright?” He asked quieting down and
looking at me.
“Please just leave me alone Jayden.” I said as a tear rolled down my face. Jayden stared at me as I closed my eyes trying to fight them off.
“Bailey I’m sorry I didn’t mean what I just said.” He said giving me sad eyes.
“It’s alright, I just, I’m just really tired.” He nodded.
“Alright, I’ll come back later.” He whispered. He turned around to walk out but suddenly turned around. “Can I have one more kiss?” He said quietly as if he didn’t want anyone to hear.
“Sure.” He came over almost silently and pressed his lips onto mine in a sweet kiss. He pulled back and pulled the blanket up as I started to close my eyes as the tiredness really started to take
“Sleep tight,” was the last thing I heard before I fell into a deep restless sleep……
I woke to the sound of my cell phone blaring next to my head. I rubbed my eyes picking it up.
Taylor*Hey sorry I had to call again. Just to see if you were alright. I called before and you didn’t answer so I just started to panic. What if I don’t get my hug?
Me* I’m alright sorry. These pain meds there giving me are knocking me right out.
Taylor* Pain meds? Knocking you out? Bailey what the hell is going on?
Me* I just had a rough patch.
Taylor* Please tell me your alright.
Me* I am I promise.
Taylor* What is that noise? Are you in the hospital?
Taylor* Aw man Bailey I wish I was there if you right now.
I closed my eyes flapping back on my pillows. I wish he was too.
Taylor* You still there Bailey?
Me* Your not calling me Blondie.
Taylor* No you’re in pain and it’s not funny. I wish I was there to hold your hand like the last time.
Me* I wish you were too…
Taylor* God this is horrible. You’re like a frickin’ danger magnet.
Me* I’m sorry.
Taylor*Why are you apologizing? You didn’t do anything wrong.
Me* I don’t know why….
Taylor* It’s alright your just scared.
Me* I know.
I heard mumbling and voices in the background.
Taylor* Crap Bailey I have to go on patrol. I will call you right after I get back I promise.
Me* Alright. Stay safe.
Taylor* Same as you. I don’t know what I would do if I lost you…
I was about to ask him what he meant when I heard the click of the phone being disconnected. I sighed. If he does like me who am I going to choose? Jayden or Taylor?
N/A: Okay So I have to ask. Team Hollywood (Taylor) or Team Jayden?
